Milz, Patricia Kathryn (29 JUN 1963)

A home in Loyal awaits Mr. and Mrs. James Welsh upon their return from a honeymoon trip to Niagara Falls, New York.

The former Patricia Kathryn Milz and James Henry Welsh were married Saturday at 10:30 a.m. in St. Anthony’s Catholic Church by Rev. Norbert E. King.  They are the son and daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Ted Welsh, Loyal and Mr. and Mrs. Edward Milz, Loyal.

The bride wore a floor length gown of Chantilly lace over taffeta with a jewel trimmed scalloped Sabrina neckline and long sleeves.  The bouffant skirt was fashioned with all around tiers of lace with a chapel sweep back.  Her elbow length veil was attached to a crown of pearls and sequins.

Dresses of yellow silk organza over taffeta styled with scalloped necklines and deep pleated skirts with matching bow clip veils were worn by the bridal aides who were Mrs. Paul Jirak, Waucoma, Iowa, a sister of the bride, matron of honor and bridesmaids, Mrs. James Heidewald, Chicago, a sister of the groom, Nancy Milz, Loyal, a sister of the bride and Delores Kramer, Greenwood.  They carried cascade arrangements of yellow carnations and daisies.

Best man was James Heidewald, Chicago, a brother in law of the groom.  Groomsmen were Paul Jirak, Waucoma, Iowa, a brother in law of the bride, and Don Hawker, Loyal.  Ushering duties were performed by Robert Shea, Cresco, Iowa, a cousin of the bride and Richard Heubauer, Minneapolis.

A dinner was served in the church dining hall and a reception and supper at the home of the bride’s parents.  A dance was held in their honor at Riplinger.

The couple are graduates of Loyal High School, the bride in 1961 and the groom in 1957.  Mr. Welsh is employed at Pathfinder in Spencer.
